    U.S. outfield full of first-rounders

    Jay Bruce, Chattanooga Lookouts (Double-A, Reds)

    Bruce has been on the fast track to the Major Leagues since the Reds selected him in the first round -- No. 12 overall -- in the 2005 Draft.

    The only bump in the road thus far came in the form of a pulled quadriceps muscle that led the Reds to keep him with Class A Dayton for the entirety of the 2006 season as a precaution. The injury hardly slowed him down, though, as he finished the Midwest League season first in extra-base hits (63) and doubles (42), and fifth in RBIs (81) and home runs (16).

    Bruce was the youngest player to appear in the 2006 Midwest League All-Star Game, and walked away from the event with the game's Most Valuable Player honor after a 3-for-5 performance that included a two-run homer.

    He debuted with Class A Advanced Sarasota this season, where the 20-year-old hit .325 with 11 home runs and 49 RBIs in 67 games before being promoted to Double-A Chattanooga on June 21. Since then, the 6-foot-2 Texan is hitting .293 with three doubles, three home runs and 10 RBIs.

    That article is not true at all. Jay was not the youngest player in the MWL AS Game. Justin Upton is about 5 months younger and he played. Cameron Maybin is 1 day younger and also played in the game.

    Poor reporting.
